The most gorgeous adventure comic strip of all time, the on-going PrinceValiant Sunday-only comic strip ran for 35 years under its creator, HalFoster. Foster limned epic swordfights and some of the most beautiful humanbeings ever to appear in comics. And he matched his nonpareil visual sense withthe narrative instincts of a born storyteller. Prince Valiant haspreviously been widely available only in re-colored, now-out-of print editions(which fetch collectors' prices). Thanks to advances in production technologyand newly available original proof sheets, this new series is the first tofeature restored artwork that captures every delicate line and chromatic nuanceof Foster's masterpiece. Comic strip aficionados will be ecstatic, and youngerreaders who enjoy classic adventure will be bowled over. Book One also has arare, in-depth Foster interview.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hal Foster: A Masterful Story-Teller And A Magnificent Illustator Hal Foster's Prince Valiant is a classic illustrated story. The stories are greatly entertaining to read, and, Mr. Foster's illustrations are magnificent works-of-art that clearly show what is happening in the stories. I have collected the first five of Fantagraphic's Hal Foster's Prince Valiant collections, and, I will be collecting the rest.
